The M&M boys had three hits apiece, Vance Worley pitched his first win as a Twin and Ryan Doumit smacked a two-run insurance homer as Minnesota evened its series with Baltimore, winning 8-5 Saturday.

Justin Morneau led the Twins with three RBI, including the game winner on a two-out single to left that scored two in the decisive 4th inning. Joe Mauer continued a hot streak, going 3-4 with a double, RBI and three runs scored, according to Sports Network.

Ryan Doumit added his third home run of the season in the 6th inning, giving the Twins some breathing room against a Baltimore team that came from six runs down to win 9-6 the night before.

"Joe banged the ball around, Morney had three, Doumit hit one out," Manager Ron Gardenhire told Fox Sports North after the game, saying that this Twins team is tough. "I expect these guys to bounce back."

Worley (1-4) notched his first win of the season and got by with a little help from his friends after giving up five runs in 5 1/3 innings. Gardenhire called Brian Duensing "fantastic" pitching in two innings of relief, Jared Burton got the save, as closer Glenn Perkins stays on the mend.

Matt Wieters hit a solo shot and had a sacrifice fly and Manny Machado had three hits and an RBI for the Orioles.
